Maybe you don't know but the visit to the basilica is free of charge, just like every other church in Italy, and to go in the dome you can buy a ticket there, which wouldn't cost you as much as the tour....but in doing that, you'll have spared somw money, but also you lose on the very important and interesting information oue guide us. She gave us a short history lesson and helped us understand what we are seeing. Loved it with the guide. Up in the dome the view ist the best, ans worth going up the stairs.
